On 23 October, EAPN presented the assessment of national EAPN networks on the 2008-10 National Action Plans on Social inclusion 2008-10 at a seminar organized by Eurocities, the network of major European cities.
These EAPN first findings were presented in the opening plenary session together with representatives from the Commission, the Social Protection Committee and the Network of Independent Experts. Other EAPN members participated in the workshops sessions.
The EAPN networks assessment will then form the basis of the EAPN report to be published in November.
This seminar aimed to develop an assessment of the National Action Plans from a local perspective and to develop recommendations for a better involvement of cities and other actors in the Open Method of Coordination in the field of social policy.
